This is a layout of my family, it is a simple day fishing at a lake. I love the picture because it shows my boys in the back ground fishing with my husband and daughter watching them, of course fishing as well. I used a filter on the picture through Instagram called Walden, it gave the picture a softer feel, more like nature. I have found that having a great picture to start with when making a layout, versus a picture you kind of like but "need to scrap" makes a world of difference. The picture gives me the inspiration I need and the page just comes more naturally instead of fighting with the need to "just get this page done".
